when I began riding I sought out a trainer and since I live in a remote town we have 1 dressage, 1 English and 1 natural horsemanship trainer, I wanted to focus on behavioral training and the later had great recommendations. So I began training with her and she turned my horse around. I was 16 and had never had training and my horse was back yard bred plus had not been worked with in over 2 years. I always rode western and my trainer focused alot on teaching me to understand how the horses brain works so I could be better prepared to learn how to assess the situations that I was sometimes in. I never learned how to ride properly and Im sill correcting my seat and so forth but I have excellent communication with my horse and I wouldn't trade that for the world. It taught me that with patience I can get my horse to do anything... I've had 4 horses ranging from 2yrs old to 16 years old and all of them will do anything asked because 1. They TRUST me and 2. I know how to redirect their mind into a positive mind set.

*by anything I mean, lakes, ocean waves, crossing deep rivers, cars, parades, rodeos, horseshows, new trails, they all have been great with other horses not aggressive, 2 year old children, and these are horses I got for free or close to free.

People always comment on how well trained my horses are and it all comes from their mind set and mine.

The only thing I learned from Parrelli is left and right brain introvert and extrovert. And I love double notted halters :)

I basically comes down to this:
UNLESS you are beating and scaring your horse into submission which usually will get you no where, you are working with your horses mind and that's natural enough for me.
So forget the stereo types Clinton Anderson, parrelli, WHATEVER pick a trainer who YOU like and YOU like the results. Its YOUR horse.

HAPPY TRAILS :)

I have a horse! Why am I WALKING!??

Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls- they give us hope!

I just don't at all understand why real trainers would even work with her. She must pay them A LOT for them to put up with her sloppiness and BS.

I could not watch the entire Proud Meadows video, so could someone please explain WHY she was there? All I saw was her standing next to Hess.

As Palogal said $$$$$.

Thanks.

I did not watch the entire video, either (I got through about half of it), but it seemed like she was just parroting back whatever he said and agreeing with it. She didn't add anything.

[QUOTE=bsms;2852330]Here are screen captures of Linda Parelli riding dressage at a walk:





GAH! There it is... and this is why they probably make so much money marketing those pads with the shims- they tell people to ride this way and then make money off of sore horses backs..I am by no means a dressage expert, but I have never seen the cutter slouch in dressage before.

Sorry to just jump in here but I got through the whole video and I have to agree. She really didn't add anything and that's what irked me, like...she has NOTHING interesting to say her about dressage and riding, what she kept pointing out was 'she doesnt punish the horse and I like that' you could tell that he was the expert and she was there as the 'face' to it all because of her already huge following.
I don't put too much stock in parelli...I worked at a horse rescue where there were a few 'certified parelli' (don't know if they actually were or not) trainers, the horses that they worked with were generally very pushy and rude and they didn't respect people at all, especially around feed time and that's very dangerous when you have inexperienced volunteers, adult and children, going around feeding the horses. I'm not saying the methods wont work for the right horse and person...but you can't treat a horse like they're your friend as the parellis say..you're their leader, or you aren't, it's that simple.
